For my 150 episode a great story. Making a Murderer has captured peoples thoughts because it is an amazing story. But if Steven Avery was framed and he didn't kill Teresa Halbach who did? Well this theory will blow your mind. How about a serial killer who not only kills people but frames people for the murders. I know enjoy the story of Edward Wayne Edwards. Stay after the credits to hear audio for the FBI agent that cracked the case. Enjoy!

Being the host of a comedy show is the most important job on the show next to the headliner. In Canada the host or MC is THE most important job on the show and they get paid the most.
